Newbie question

I'm new to Subversion and have a usage scenario in mind that I was wondering whether Subversion will help me or not.

I have a large directory of various files (and file types) and nested subdirectories. These files are updated by numerous different processes. What I would like to be able to do is to use the "real" directory as a "working set" and to use subversion to create a "versioned, delta backup" repository of the files in this directory. Is this a realistic use of subversion? I know there are probably other true backup tools out there, but this is the first thing that came to my mind.

thanks for any feedback/insight/etc!
